Colorado - 1992

On Friday, October 29, 1992,  I drove to Ouray, Colorado with my brother-in-law, Dave Kenison, with the intent of climbing Mount Sneffels, a 14,000+ foot peak. 
From Ouray we drove a dirt road into the Yankee Boy Basin and slept in the back of his Blazer. 
Saturday, October 30, with snow on the ground and fog in the basin, we started to climb Potosi Peak, a nearby 13,786 foot mountain, thinking it was Mount Sneffels. We got part way up and had to turn around as conditions were too dangerous. As things started to clear up we realized we'd climbed the wrong mountain. We headed back to Utah that afternoon.
